Bill English and Tourism NZ boss speaking to exclusive group

Former Prime Minister Bill English and Tourism NZ boss speaking to exclusive group at a top NZ lodge

Former Prime Minister Bill English and Director of Trade, PR and Major Events at Tourism New Zealand René de Monchy, will address investors and family offices from Australia and New Zealand in Auckland on Friday.

Organised by the Table Club and hosted at the luxurious Hurakia Lodge on Rakino Island in the Hauraki Golf, the invite-only three-hour lunch will focus on the America’s Cup, and is planned in conjunction with the arrival of Volvo Around The World Yacht series 2018.

Mr English and Mr de Monchy will reveal New Zealand’s preparation plans for the two events and will answer questions from the attendees, which include several Australian yachting families.

Table Club member and Hurakia Lodge owner John MacCulloch says his VIP guests are looking forward to hearing Mr English and Mr de Monchy disclose plans for the two international events and what they mean for the country.

“Members are looking forward to hearing about plans put in place during Bill English’s time in office to host such massive events and their ripple effects for New Zealand economically.

“Naturally, there will also be questions about Mr English’s role as prime minister and cabinet minister in the National government, which I expect he will be more comfortable answering now that he is not serving, a rare opportunity for our attendees.

“Hurakia Lodge was originally built when New Zealand hosted the America’s Cup and is delighted to see it return here. This is a major event for New Zealand and generates excitement, interest and significant economic benefits for the nation.”

The Table Club is a global network which organises events for family offices and ultra-high net worth individuals for the purpose of networking, idea-sharing, education and co-investing.

Two years ago, it brought fifth generation Justin Rockefeller from New York’s famed Rockefeller family which was hosted and sold out at the Hurakia Lodge.

“The Hurkia Lodge is the perfect place to host such events, with spectacular 360º views looking out over Auckland’s North Shore. It is a great opportunity for New Zealand family offices and high net worth individuals and to get together to mingle in highly exclusive and sought-after events.

Gordon Campbell: On Why France Could Become Our Closest Ally In Europe

As PM Jacinda Ardern returns from a triumphant tour to Britain and the capitals of Europe, her officials have probably begun to assess what the more substantive gains from the trip might have been. Most of the chatter has been about potential trade deals – so lets just assume for the moment that bilateral trade deals between big and small countries are a good thing, despite the perils they pose to the smaller party. Currently, Britain is so involved with its Brexit nightmare that there seems little prospect of any substantive early progress on an FTA with Britain. In any case, New Zealand should be wary of being the first cab off that particular rank. ... More>>
